OnePlus is going to launch not one, but three new phones under its flagship this year. While the OnePlus 7 is expected to be one of the new phones launched, it is not going to be the endgame. The phone Company is also going to launch the OnePlus 7 Pro, a phone loaded with features. Before OnePlus makes an official announcement about the launch date on the 23rd of April, here is taking a look at what to expect from the OnePlus 7 Pro:
1. A dual curved screen
The OnePlus 7 Pro is rumoured to come with a dual curved screen, a feature which no other OnePlus phone has so far. While the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Huawei P30 Pro have a similar design, this new OnePlus 7 Pro is likely to offer a better screen to body ratio. Furthermore, the OnePlus 7 Pro will also get rid of the notch in the front and is going to come with a pop up selfie camera module.
2. The battery life
The OnePlus 7 Pro is going to come with a battery life of 4,000 mAh and 30W Warp Charging Support. However, while the charging speed is going to be faster than before, the OnePlus 7 Pro will not come with wireless charging support. Other smartphone companies are providing this feature and the fact OnePlus 7 Pro doesn’t come with this feature may be a slightly negative factor.
3. Display (Include the display specifications)
The OnePlus 7 Pro is going to come with a display which was not seen in other OnePlus phones. With a 6.7 inch display, the new OnePlus comes with Quad HD+ resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Furthermore, the new phone will come with an embedded fingerprint sensor. With 90Hz, the new screen is going to make the new phone super smooth and very crisp. The high refresh rate will be a blessing for those who love playing games on their phones. From switching between screens to swiping through applications, every feature is smoother and faster on the OnePlus 7 Pro.
4. 5G Network
The OnePlus 7 Pro is going to be the first in the OnePlus series to be compatible with the 5G network. Apart from this, the OnePlus 7 Pro is also going to be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and 8GB RAM. While the Company hasn’t made a lot of noise about OnePlus 7 Pro and the 5G network, this feature makes waiting for the phone all the more harder.
5. Price and availability
Because of all the features and the amount of money invested into the OnePlus 7 Pro screen, rumours are, the new OnePlus phone is going to be extremely expensive. While the OnePlus 7 Pro may be priced at a higher rate than its previous phones, it is still not as highly priced as the latest Samsung or Huawei phones.
With the launch date being announced this evening, the wait for this new phone gets harder. If you think we missed out any other specifications or features, comment and let us know!
